-- My Thoughts --
After reading the first book in the series, The Oracle of Dating (find my review here) and liking it. I decided to give the second book a try. Better watch out for spoilers if you haven't read the first book. I admit it, I was very reluctant to start this one. Since I didn't know what will the author add to the ALREADY very good story. I thought that it will be just a stretch, a twin of the first book.
Hell, I was wrong.
Kayla's happily-ever-after with Jared was supposed to last FOREVER. But when Jared decides to "take a step back", Kayla is confused, hurt, and enraged. What did she do that got her hurt that much? There is only one thing that Kayla can do. Find a rebound. A cute, funny boy who will be able to take Jared's place. But it's not all that simple.
When Kayla's mom accepts a new exchange student, she is terrified. But when a hot-as-hell boy with a sexy accent arrives on her doorstep, well, it doesn't look so bad after all. But he is only staying for two short weeks. To take her mind off things, Kaila starts guest posting for her "website". But even THAT doesn't turn out as good as it should. Can Kayla take anymore?
What will Kayla do? Who will she take as her rebound? Will she every forget the boy who has her heart? Find out much more when you read The Oracle Rebounds. A funny, light, and quirky contemporary novel.
I liked this book so MUCH. Just as much as the first one. I was dreading reading this one, I was afraid that it will make me hate the series altogether. But it didn't. It made me love the series much more. I really like Allison Van Diepen's writing style. She simplifies everyday lives and puts dots on the letters. She is a straight-forward, great novelist.
I liked the characters, too. They are very simple and teenage-y :P Even though they can be very stupid sometimes and make the stupidest decisions, I still felt for them and loved them. Kayla is much more mature even through her heartbreak. I liked every single thing in this novel.
I still recommend this novel to everyone who wants to have a good time, and have a fun read. I am not very sure if there is a third book coming out, but if it is. I WILL be the one of the first to read it. FOR SURE...
